Classic Green Juice

This is my current favorite green juice recipe... it's loaded with fresh vegetables, fruits, and ginger!    Juicing is a great way to supplement a healthy diet and boost your antioxidant and micronutrient load!  This recipe is derived from the "Original Mean Green Juice" as seen on the documentary, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead.  By using spinach and two types of apples you reduce the bitterness and tartness of the original recipe.   

Drink the green juice in small servings throughout the day if possible to keep a steady flow of antioxidants and healthy micronutrients flowing into your body!  I especially like to enjoy it between meals and during late afternoon sluggishness! :-)  

6 kale leaves (lucinato is my fav.)
2.5 oz. baby spinach leaves 
8 celery sticks
2 green apples, cored
2 cameo, jonagold, or golden delicious apples , cored 
1 lemon, peeled
1.5-2 inch piece fresh ginger

1.  Juice all ingredients and pour into two clean glass bottles with lids.  Keep chilled.  

This recipe makes enough for two servings.  I juice enough for two days and store it in air-tight clean recycled glass bottles.  I don't recommend keeping the green juice for more than 3 days as the antioxidant and micronutrient levels may decrease.  Separation is natural so shake before drinking and keep in the refrigerator.
